Dynamic Discs offers volunteer opportunities at the 2022 PDGA Professional World Championships, which gives people another way to be involved with the event.

ON-COURSE VOLUNTEERS: COURSE SUPPORT

One of the benefits of volunteering on the course is a front-row seat to the tournament! Course tasks include spotting, crowd control, scoreboard carriers, and playing tee-off songs. All course support tasks involve fair to considerable amounts of walking and being outdoors for an extended period of time.

TASK DESCRIPTIONS

Course Prep: Involves a considerable amount of walking. Tasks could include but are not limited to mulching around tee pads, putting up feather flags and signs around the course, and assisting with flagging OB lines to ensure the course is ready for tournament play.

Spotter: An understanding of disc golf rules and protocol is preferred. Involves being outdoors for a long period of time. Watching where discs land to assist with the flow of play. (Instructional Spotter video here: https://youtu.be/F9H0S5xg-zc)

Crowd Control + Scoreboard Carrying: An understanding of disc golf rules and protocol is preferred. Involves a considerable amount of walking and being outdoors for a long period of time. Tasks could include carrying a scoreboard, holding “QUIET” signs, and keeping the crowd back from the players.

Gates: Checking badges, directing people to parking lots, opening and closing gates, and moving barricades.

Course Teardown: Taking down canopies, feather flags, and signs. Pulling OB flags. Returning items to tournament central to be packed up after the event is over.
